Hey all, I've been riding about 6 months, but never really had the need to park on a footpath. I'll soon be commuting to the city (Melbourne), and I'm a bit nervous about jumping on the footpath for the first time. Especially in the city with the amount of foot traffic that is usually around. How do you guys do it? Where do you get on the footpath, nearest pedestrian crossing or something? How do you get off the footpath when leaving, down the gutter or back down the pedestrian crossing? Do people tend to move out of the way? How do you indicate to them that you're going up to park? Sorry if this has been asked before. I searched but mostly found discussions on the practice rather than a "how to". Thanks!
